The old one was named Polly (how original was that?) and the young one

his cage, Polly chomped the foot and Sonoma withdrew with a bloody claw
and they got along great after that. A hard lesson and happened so fast
I could not prevent it but the point is, I do know what it is like to be
in the company of a cranky old Amazon. :)
